Celebrate Barbados Independence With Yellow Pages
On November 30, 2013 Barbados will celebrate 47 years of independence, as you prepare to celebrate this special occasion let the Yellow Pages assist you… the Yellow Pages is the perfect place to meet all your celebration needs.
Thinking about boldly displaying your national pride? What better statement piece than your home? Throw pillows, carpets, curtains, paint, accent pieces and even Barbados flags are only a phone call away with the Yellow Pages. Let your colour scheme reflect the Barbados flag with vivid aquamarine, gold and black touches, or you may prefer to incorporate shades of blue and yellow in your décor to create a softer effect.
Want to take a more traditional approach? Then wearing your national colours is the most simple and effective option. Pair your blue jeans with an attractive yellow tribal print top, or even bring the outdoors into the office with a summery yellow and black print dress. Let’s not forget the children, T-shirts and children’s polo shirts featuring national emblems are always winners. Don’t own any clothing in blue, yellow or black? No problem, simply use the Yellow Pages to access an extensive list of department stores, boutiques and malls with eye-catching clothing to meet your needs.
For those interested in learning more about Barbados’ rich and varied history, a visit to a museum is a wonderful place to start. For a holistic look at the island’s development, visit the Barbados Museum & Historical Society to peruse over 500,000 artefacts, dating from prehistoric times through the 21st century. If you are more interested in specific areas of history, then there are numerous options ranging from Parliament’s National Heroes Gallery and Museum, to Arlington House Interactive Museum, and Cricket Legends of Barbados, to name a few.
Want to make an outing of it? Then gather the family and friends and take a scenic drive to some of the Barbados’ several attractions. From the Animal Flower Cave in the north, to Sunbury Great House in the east, there is a lot to see. Be sure to fill up on gas and snacks for the road before departing. Remember, appropriate music adds to any occasion, so be sure you have a selection of traditional folk songs, old calypsos and spouge music for the drive. Don’t have any on your iPod or cellular phone? A quick stop at a music store is the answer.
We all know no celebration is complete without food, and traditional Bajan dishes such as conkies, cassava pone, fishcakes, bakes and cou cou and flying fish are ‘must haves’ in November. For those of you wishing to display your culinary genius, supermarkets across the island are stocked with all the necessities to make these tasty dishes. If you prefer to be served, be sure to visit some of the many restaurants and bars offering these mouthwatering Bajan treats, and enjoy along with a tall, refreshing glass of mauby.
Now you have a few ideas, go to the Yellow’s Pages’ search window and let Yellow Pages assist you in making this your most memorable Independence ever! Happy Independence Barbados!!
